  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) cold unsalted butter cut into small cubes

Notes

Storing and Freezing Instructions

Storing

Leftover blueberry cobbler should be stored in the refrigerator. If baked in a cast iron skillet, carefully transfer the cobbler to an airtight container. If baked in a baking dish, tightly wrap the baking dish in plastic wrap followed by foil (to minimize the amount of moisture). Blueberry cobbler should be eaten within 2 to 3 days from when it was baked.

Freezing

If freezing the cobbler, bake in a baking dish (and not a skillet) for easy reheat. To freeze, allow the cobbler to cool completely, then tightly wrap the baking dish in plastic wrap followed by foil. Store in the freeze for up to 1 month. To reheat, preheat oven to 350˚F. Unwrap cobbler and bake (fully frozen) for 20 to 25 minutes or until the cobbler has thawed and heated through.
The biscuit topping on the cobbler will be slightly soggy once reheated (nothing beats enjoying blueberry cobbler fresh!), but still delicious.

Variations for Our Blueberry Cobbler

  • Use frozen blueberries if fresh blueberries aren't available. The frozen blueberries should be used frozen. Just add an additional 2 teaspoons of cornstarch to the filling. The cobbler may also need an additional 5 to 10 minutes of baking time.
  • Add 1 teaspoon of cinnamon to the filling or biscuit topping! The ground cinnamon adds a really nice aroma and flavor.
  • Add zest of 1 lemon to the biscuit dough. The zest adds a really nice subtle but bright citrus flavor to the biscuit crust.
  • Omit the turbinado sugar from the topping if you prefer a biscuit topping without the crunch.
